Playhouse Struts, SNAP Parks It, and Witching Hour Monkeys Around

A thank you goes out to those readers that wrote Cold Cream in response to last week’s column. The clear response from everyone was that the OEA Awards are certainly enjoyable for all involved, but ideas for how to improve the experience were quite varied. One notable response was from local playwright Beaufield Barry.

“I love the OEAs and I think that to be taken more seriously they have to take themselves more...

Behanding Is Blue Barn at its Best

By Warren Francke

 

A Behanding in Spokane is the Blue Barn at its best with Kevin Lawler directing Thomas Becker as Cunningham, the grim sociopath in search of his missing left hand.

Quick perspective: This company’s treatment of such Edward Albee plays as Three Tall Women and The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? along with Vieux Carre by Tennessee Williams rank near the top of my lifetime of theater-going...

<p>  Spruce is cozily stuffed with lots of luxurious items.</p>Lux On Leavenworth

Tucked away in a little brick building in a most unassuming spot, Spruce, an interior and gift boutique, is almost discreet enough to pass by without knowing. But the little shop on 50th and Leavenworth manages to burst enough personality from the front windows to pique the curiosity of passersby.

Pick: Birthday Suits

February 22
Birthday Suits
Slowdown, 729 North 14th St.
9 p.m., $7, theslowdown.com

Minnesota-based duo plays a big, straightforward brand of garage rock that incorporates elements of punk-pop and noise rock that's hinged on steady snare-drum thwap and the melodic buzz of Hideo Takahashi's huge guitar riffs. Takahashi favors simple lyrical lines, letting the songs stay short and punchy. The band is releasing...
